Salvador has the largest African descendent population out of Africa, and it is preserved, better than any other city, the African culture such as food, music, religion and our way of living. Joining this tour is diving into the Bahian tradition.

The scenic Coconut Highway leads to Praia do Forte, a fishing village 50 miles north of Salvador, home to some of the best beaches in Bahia. Here we visit the ruins of the Garcia D´Ávila Castle (1556), once the home of the largest landowner in the New World and experience the breathtaking panoramic view of the northern coastline.

Praia do Forte is also the home of the national sea turtle preserve, the TAMAR Project, one of Brazil’s most successful ecological programs. Take the time to relax on the beautiful white sand beaches of Praia do Forte or browse the many local arts and crafts markets before returning to Salvador. After relaxing in Praia do Forte, we go straight to Guarajuba for our delicious lunch at one of many beach tents in the area. Guests will have more time on the beach before returning to Salvador.​
